South Tyrolean wines – Our vision & our story

Our Story

The family of Josef Waldner, owner of the winery, have been making wine for 350 years. The origin of winemaking at the Eichenstein has its roots in Marling, where the dedicated wine lover created his first white wine cuvée “Gloria Dei” in 2005. In 2006, he followed on with his “Baccara” Marlot and Cabernet Franc red wine cuvéè, assisted and advised by renowned enologist Hartmann Donà.

In 2007 Josef Waldner further realised his vision when he established the Eichenstein vineyard on the Freiberg, from 550-600 m, above Meran. In 2014, the crowning jewel of the vineyard was built: The wine cellar, a vinarium and a guest chalet. And in 2018, the most recent porphyry plot was established at 500 m above sea level. 



Our vision is depicted with immense clarity in our select wines Seppeleia, Chardonnay Riserva, Stein and Sauvignon Blanc. Their uniqueness represents our passion for winemaking and stylistics, and promise a long life. 

Natural cultivation for top-quality, authentic, charismatic wines.
